The Event - Method Of Judging
There are several rounds to the competition and the format is designated so that should the best dogs meet in any round they can still progress ensuring that the judges choice of the best dogs are in the final round.
In round one the competitors are placed into eight groups (number in each group is dependant on the total number of qualifiers) and are placed in the groups at random draw. The judge will then select two dogs to progress to the next round. These competitors then draw a card which denotes the group that they will be in for the next round.
In round two we are left with four groups of four dogs. The judge will then select two from each group to progress to the next round. These competitors then draw a card which denotes the group that they will be in for the next round.
In round three we are left with two groups of four dogs. The judge will then select two from each group to progress to the final round.
In the final round the last four dogs compete and the results are announced in reverse order.
The judge will be appointed secretly (not even our committee will know who it will be!). It could be a foreign judge in which case the appointee will have briefed the judge on the UK Pomeranian Breed Standard prior to the competition.
